When NBC's Brian Williams asked former President Jimmy Carter whether he views the country as a “glass half-full or half-empty,"  Carter said he believes that President Barack Obama is laboring under a Washington that has become more polarized than it was during the Civil War. Carter referred to the landmark time as the period of “initiation of the ‘war between the states,'" according to a republicanredefined.com report.

Jimmy, carter, US, polarized, civil, war"This country has become so polarized that it's almost astonishing . . . Not only with the red and blue states…

"President Obama suffers from the most polarized situation in Washington that we have ever seen — even maybe than the time of Abraham Lincoln and the initiation of the war between the states," Carter said.
